Melt Cosmetics Recuerdos is a slightly warm-toned, dark purple with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Melt Cosmetics Recuerdos Ultra Matte Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It looked pinker and lighter swatched, and while it was very stiff and dry, it actually applied a lot more evenly than I expected.
There was more sheerness than real unevenness, as it had more medium, buildable color coverage. The lipstick tugged noticeably on my lips as I applied it, though it felt thin and lightweight on. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a stain behind, and felt somewhat drying while worn.
